Museo delle Culture

Aware of the continuous transformations of our society, the Museum incessantly inquiries about the possibilities of cultures’ dialogue.

Thirty years since its opening and with a fully renewed style, the MUSEC hosts in Villa Malpensata a rich exhibitions and events program which, with an anthropological point of view, comprises Primitivism as the photography of Exotism.
